Ocean current turbines could give reliable power

University experiments prove turbine technology

Ocean currents are a clean, reliable and renewable source of power - but they are difficult to use. Now a team from the Quantum Wave Microscopy Unit at Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University (OIST) has demonstrated the feasibility of extracting energy from these currents using a submerged turbine. The design is especially suitable for regions regularly devastated by storms and typhoons, such as Japan, Taiwan, and the Philippines. It is intended to harness th...
